We are very pleased to announce our next two guest on the Women in Racing Careering Ahead interview series.
Eileen Harte - Commercial Director, Keith Harte Bloodstock Ltd
Thursday 12th November - 6.30pm
Spending many weekends as a young girl at race meetings in Ireland Eileen was struck by the racing bug at an early age. Her passion for horses continued throughout her life and she eventually turned this into a successful career with her husband when they set up Keith Harte Bloodstock Ltd. Now over 15 years in the industry they are settling into their newly acquired farm in North Essex.
Breeding and selling thoroughbreds fill their days but the young people coming into the industry is something Eileen and her team concentrate on. Taking on apprentices and work placements and working as a mentor with Women In Racing became Eileen’s new passion and focus. This focus is continued through her volunteer work with Racing Welfare and her role as a Judge on the panel for the Godolphin Stud and Stable Staff Awards.
Anna Kerr - Cheif Operating Officer, The National Stud
Wednesday 18th November - 6.30pm
